We love the warm, sunny days of summer, and one of our favorite parts of the season is time spent in beautiful, comfortable outdoor spaces. As décor enthusiasts here at Well Woven, we get excited about decorating outdoor patios, porches, and decks, and we are firm believers in the power of a great outdoor rug to tie the whole space together and to protect your surfaces.
But where to begin in your outdoor space? The design options can feel as infinite as the big, blue sky, but fortunately, making your outdoor space look amazing is easy with only a few simple design principles!
